Staying at Home Edit - Celebrating The University of Oxford Issue.

As many countries are starting to plan to or are in the processes of lifting their lockdown restrictions, we're sending out another 'Staying at Home Edit' with some more recommendations. 
As we are proud to be one of the Official Licensees that is producing product for and on behalf of The University of Oxford, we wanted to celebrate this wonderful city and its world renowned University.

Tortoise Races in Oxford

Did you know that every college in Oxford has a tortoise they they own and look after, and every May they race them. It would be safe to assume that the tortoises are getting a rest this year. 

Tour Oxford's Museum of History of Science virtually and discover some items that changed the world. 

Take a tour of the first ever public museum in the world and discover some treasures. This Oxford museum opened in 1683! Down in the basement you can find the chalkboard that Albert Einstein wrote his famous e=mc2 equation on during his time at the University in 1950.


Listen to Famed Oxonians.

With an Alumni list that includes world renowned Scientists, Scholars, Writers, Philosophers, Actors and Politicians, these podcasts interviewees share career highlights, insights, and memories of student days in each 15-minute episodes. Interviewees includes the Chief Executive of Oxfam, Mark Goldring CBE, Comedian and broadcaster, Ruby Wax and David Miliband, President and CEO of the International Rescue Committee.

We especially liked the episode with Patrick Grant, Menswear designer and judge on the BBC’s Great British Sewing Bee.
